UKRM ISP?

    Seeing as there is one owned within the group, an ISP that is, is there
    any desire for a decently hosted spam free UKRM email system and
    webspace. Secure FTP if its desired. Anything else you can think of.

    I'm sure that amongst us we can provide some hardware, rack mount
    preferably, and I'll connect it to the MCI backbone.

    Only thing I'm not up for is a usenet server unless someone can convince
    me otherwise. The German Swerver seems to do most of us well enough and
    you can pay Supernews for yer binaries....

    there

    at least two. Steve Rawlinson used to regularly post, and I believe he
    still lurks (well, he was doing so the last time I exchanged email with
    him a couple of months ago).
    what, another one?
    Can you provide me with a public-facing application server? Ideally
    JBoss AOP?
    don't need another Usenet server, no.

    Owned as opposed to runs...
    ukrm mail currently seems to be so spam laden as to be unusable
    Commercially yes, otherwise not immediately. Damn things have a
    voracious appetite for processor and ram.

    Oh. Although I've a vague notion of what you do, I don't actually know.
    that's very true. Free rackspace and bandwidth would be a start...

    Business partner and myself. MCI don't run here themselves so retail and
    wholesale through us. We do desktop support as well and are building a
    new pan irish company with flat pricing cross border at the behest of
    the two Gov's. BT have the hump big time :eek:) Esat/BT have been raping
    the Island for years.

    Folk get into the Incubator rack for a year BTW, if we take the notion!
    There is just a small annual for power. Ya pay for bandwidth if you
    start to burn lots but the rack is getting a Meg free.

    good on you.
    noted. I have a business project in mind, but there are two problems at
    the moment

    1) it's just at the "I think this is a good idea" stage
    2) I'm contractually bound that any software I create, even if wholly
    developed in my own time, belongs to my employer[1].

    [1] this is one of the reasons I gave ukrm.net away to Tallbloke[2].
    [2] wonder what he's doing with it.

    well, duh. It's not going to be a show-stopper. I'm sure the code can
    all be written by A.N.Onymous.

  11. It was somewhere around Barstow, on the edge of the desert, when the
    Fuckin' too true. And Eircom, don't forget those bastards.

    Is this venture of yours likely to lead to more broadband availability
    in rural areas?

    I am talking quite specifically about cross border traffic. Eircom are
    not really guilty in this area, Esat/BT and NTL (UK) have been doing the
    damage. In terms of availability it is aimed at the Border counties
    specifically.

  13. It was somewhere around Barstow, on the edge of the desert, when the
    Oh well. The only glimmer on the horizon for me is the possibility of
    wireless b/b from the nearest node once a relay is set up (sometime in
    the next decade, iwt). Wired b/b just ain't gonna happen any time soon.
